Great food, excellent quality, service polite and attentive. The owner keeps an eye on the operations and it shows.
We sat in the outside patio and it was lovely.

We loved the food! Appreciate being able to try the wine, also awesome that servers took the time to check in and point out all the different delicious items in the vegetarian sampler! Had a lovely outside patio (raining so we couldn't sit out there but inside was nice as well!)

The taste of the food did not meet our expectations. Although the ambience and location was good, the food was just ok, not great.

There are so many Ethiopian places in the DMV, and this is very much among the best. And a Michelin star too! Delicious food, generous portions (including refills of injera throughout the meal), attentive service, and an all around great experience. Hope to be back for the next special occasion!

This was our first time dinning at Das Ethiopian. Upon arriving we were greeted with smiles and ushered into a tastefully decorated dining room. Beautiful jazz music filled the space as we enjoyed mimosas and delicious Ethiopian coffee. We are trying to move away from meats; so it was the vegetarian dishes that thoroughly delighted. If you are familiar with this type cuisine you are aware of injera (Ethiopian bread) that is used to eat the meal with your fingers. But, if needed utensils are supplied. Sambusa was our appetizer that was baked in a very thin crust. We found the house and tomato salad with fresh vegetables combined to accentuate our taste buds. For entrée’s we chose the gomen (collard greens) and the eggplant dish. Suffice it to say, each dish was a delicious balance of flavors that made this experience one of the best we’ve had in the District. We were not hurried but relished the opportunity to enjoy conversation and the view of bustling Georgetown as we waited in anticipation of the next amazing dish.

Excellent adventure. Our waitress suggested several combination. Platters that did not disappoint. If you are gluten-free, call ahead and they will make you gluten-free bread.

The meat combo was great for two. We added eggplant which was excellent! The lager made from teff was light and went great with the heat. Well done!

Went here for Date Night, and we’ve only had Ethiopian cuisine a couple times before. The injera wasn’t sour like we’ve tasted at other places, and the sambusas were not oily. I must say that the food was delicious, and I’m looking forward to us returning very soon!

food was delightful. We sampled just about everything. My personal favorite was the amazing cabbage and carrot in ginger, garlic sauce. My son especially loved the chicken and my husband loved the bean based dishes. Of course, it is always great fun to eat with you hands, using the delicious bread.

The injera was beautiful. I enjoyed the fish and collard greens. Great taste. The staff were attentive. Got my bottomless water glass filled without sometimes realizing it. The host was kind and unobtrusive but clearly present. A great place…

We celebrated two wedding anniversaries here and it was perfect. The staff was so welcoming and the food was amazing. The framed Ethiopian photographs with the blank/ white/ navy decor was so beautiful. Everyone, staff and costumers alike, we’re clearly happy to be there. This restaurants name, Das Ethiopian, fits it perfectly. A true gathering place!
